Grim Glory. Lee Miller’s Britain at War.


In stock


Arriving in Britain just as war was declared Lee Miller, an American with no permit to work, used her camera as her principle means of combat during World War II.

Before she left Britain to report in Europe Lee covered the Blitz, civilians braving the destruction around them and their contributions to the war effort. She also photographed wartime fashion, camouflage and women working in the armed forces on the home front. This book, curated by the Lee Miller Archives, contains 75 images, of which 50 are full page along with an essay by Ami Bouhassane.
